That Toddlin' Town

Posted By on Thu, May 24, 2007 at 3:53 PM

5:25 p.m. An unidentified toddler dances across the Drepung Gomang Monastery's mandala before being hustled out of Union Station by a woman, presumably the child's mother. Two days' worth of intricate sand painting is decimated in seconds, forcing eight visiting Tibetan monks to begin their task again.

5:45 p.m. Construction workers see the toddler enter the Sprint Center construction site. The toddler discovers a Zamboni hidden under a tarp and pushes it into a freshly dug sewer tunnel. The mother's car is seen peeling away; the child surfs behind it on a skateboard, holding on to a pink-and-blue rope.

5:58 p.m. Security cameras capture images of the toddler entering the Library Lofts.

6:11 p.m. Security cameras record the toddler leaving the Library Lofts with a 52-inch TV, three Nintendo Wii game consoles and a bottle of Hennessy.

6:19 p.m. The toddler attempts to deface Mayor Mark Funkhouser's car with a set of plastic toy keys. The passenger-side door falls off.

6:27 p.m. Workers flee the site of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts as the toddler approaches. The kid alters blueprints with crayon to include a moat, a dragon pit and four magic towers. Speculation builds that the child's grandmother is Kay Barnes.

6:35 p.m. The toddler stops at Mercy Seat and asks to see designs for "Fwee Twibet."
